Chocolate cakes are an all-time favourite, a chocoholic’s wonderland with oodles of chocolate, cocoa powder, vanilla and sugar. No one in the world can deny, that for at least a brief period of time - their favourite flavour of cake has been chocolate or a unique flavour rendition of it. Whether you like it simple and plain, decked in cream, or infused with other indulgent flavours like cherry or topped with ice-cream - chocolate cake always reigns supreme.
But where do the humble beginnings of this delicacy root from? In an unconventional turn of events, chocolate cake was actually discovered on accident - while trying to make syrup in circular tine, a doctor and a chocolate maker teamed up in a mill in 1765 - and created the most delicious and revered treat the world knows today - chocolate cake!
Over the years, chocolate cake has transformed into an entire genre of its own - with dozens of sorts of chocolate cake that have completely revolutionized and diversified its traditional recipe. From the Black Forest cake with its cherries to the German Chocolate Cake with its rich coconut pecan frosting, and even coffee and liquor infused slices of delicacy - chocolate cake has the perfectly decadent offering for everybody.
And what about the perfect pairings? Well, chocolate cake goes well with a multitude of flavours because of how well-loved, diverse, and flexible it’s flavour palette is! At the top of the chart, it’s obvious that chocolate cake goes well with classic flavours like Coffee, Butterscotch, Salted Caramel, Berries, Cherries and of course Dark Chocolate Fudge. But experimenting with other non-traditional flavours has always worked well with chocolate just as well, try chilli, orange or citron fruits, and even mango!
As for the perfect sip to enjoy with your slice of decadence, the best beverage pairings for chocolate cakes are strong and full-bodied, for example, Espresso coffee and Cabernet Red wine - which help cut the sweetness of the sweet delight, and add notes of bitterness to enhance and uplift the cocoa flavour, providing for the perfect palette profile.
